The light, persistent mousse carries an understated aroma of hazelnuts and cream. Itandrsquo;s soft and velvety on the palate, this it finishes dry and slightly tart. A clean, simple and integrated wine.

A very lean, dry style that focuses on its acidity and green fruits. This makes it a style that needs good bottle aging - the sample tasted was too young. But for those who like dry, crisp Champagnes, this is beautifully made.

Fresh fruit flavors and lovely acidity make this appetizing. Dry in style, bracing in texture, with complex spicy nuances that linger on the finish.

The NV Brut is a wonderfully elegant, classy wine laced with perfumed fruit that carries through to the finish, where smoke and toastiness add further layers of complexity. This mid-weight Champagne is an impeccable wine at the non-vintage level. Disgorged: June, 2008, (not indicated on the label). Anticipated maturity: 2009andndash;2013. This is an impressive set of wines from Alfred Gratien. The wines are notable for their sheer class and refinement.

Pale gold. Lively aromas of lemon and orange zest, with deeper pear and melon qualities and a hint of vanilla. Sappy and precise in the mouth, offering citrus flavors that gain flesh and sweetness with air. Finishes with very good clarity and tangy persistence.

Winemaker's Notes:

Based in the heart of Epernay, Chef des Caves Jean-Pierre Jaeger'squality-driven philosophy has raised Gratien's game considerably. Thisexquisite Champagne, with Chardonnay elegance to the fore, has notes ofapricot, brioche and peach to underline the complexity on the palate. AtGratien they serve this alongside duck breast with nectarine - what a memorableexperience!
